Hi, I want to run a separate process inside a Swing panel. However, the swing and process communicate through sockets. Is it possible to display and run an executable having its own GUI window, within a panel? Thanks, Kapil
As far as Swing, Nathan is right (as always). If you wanted to though, you could use SWT which is IBM's Standard Widget Toolkit. It has ActiveX and OLE Interfaces to do what you want. Drawbacks are System Dependencies of course. And you have to drop a DLL on every client PC that runs the software in addition to the regular JVM. It is a desent API though. And tends to be a little faster than SWING because it works more like AWT in that it let's the OS draw the Widgets rather than the API drawing it themselves. You can find out more about SWT at www.eclipse.org. Have fun.
